The Blackboard Collaborate Ultra screen
Click on the Menu button (three horizontal lines), top left, to switch from Sessions to Recordings.
After ending a session recording, it needs to be processed before it will appear in the list of Recordings. Depending on the length of the recording this can take a little time (e.g. up to a couple of hours).
The default under ‘Show Recent Recordings’ is to show any recordings made in the last week.
To view older recordings, click where it says ‘Show Recent Recordings’ to reveal the menu and select ‘Show Recordings In A Range’. You can then specify the start and end dates you want to search.
You can also search for recordings by keyword used in the name given to the recording. Click the ‘Search Sessions’ button (magnifying glass icon) in the top right of the Recording page.
